Pride Month is about so much more than mega parades. It's about fighting for the rights of the LGTBQ+ community and bringing light to the many injustices it's encountered in its fight for civil rights.
So as June approaches, many brands are announcing how they'll be doing their part in joining the fight. Kush Queens, a CBD-based skin and bath brand, is one of them. It's created a collection specifically dedicated to trans rights and is recognizing the exact people who fought for the legalization of cannabis in the first place.
Pride Bäre Tincture CBD Hemp Extract ($60, Kush Queen)
A new 1,000 mg dose from Kush Queen's favorite line of hypoallergenic CBD products provides 1,000 mg of high-quality, full-spectrum hemp CBD. Bare uses full-spectrum hemp extract, which may vary in color from dark green to dark brown, and every batch is lab tested to be pesticide-, microbial-, and heavy-metal-free.
Ignite CBD Lube ($50, Kush Queen)
Kush Queen was horrified to discover most cannabis lubes were coconut-oil based. Coconut oil is not and has never been acceptable as a personal lubricant. It alters the body’s pH, will promote the growth of yeast, and is not latex compatible. That's why it has created Ignite, a paraben-free, petrochemical-free, latex-compatible, non-staining lubricant.
The Pride Collection ($100, Kush Queen)
Celebrating the shared history of cannabis progress, and the LGBTQ+ communities, Kush Queen presents its limited-edition 2019 Pride Collection. The access to cannabis would not exist without the incredible men and women who fought for Proposition 215. Because of them, California adopted its first medical cannabis legislation in 1996, opening the doors for AIDS patients and many others to gain access to plant medicine.
